Documenting operations, missions, crisis, training and simulations.
This is the backbone of my services, documenting emergency related events, training, operations, crisis, simulations or other events for law enforcement, fire departments, search and rescue, medical or other emergency related agencies or organisations. And the best news is that there are different ways of funding my services and the cost might surprise you in a good way.
Thats where you hire me to document. I charge day rates and expenses and you get full royalty free rights to use the images. They can be distributed to participants after the event or be kept and used by you depending on your preference. If the budget allows that might be your best bet giving you all the flexibility you need.
If you are on a tight budget than a partly or fully sponsored documentation might be an option. Depending on your event we might be able to get my services funded by sponsors in part or even in full. The images then get distributed to you and participants with watermark logos from the sponsors. If you or they want to use those images it has to be used with the logos visible. The images can also be obtained and used without the watermark for a royalty. Contact me for more information.
Every now and then, when time and money permit and the project is interesting and fills a gap in my portfolio, I might take a project without asking for a fee. Ping me an email if you are planning an event/simulation/training or other SAR or Emergency related event and you want to know more.
Have a budget for a presenter/instructor?
If you have a conference or training coming up and you are have a budget for presenters or trainers that might be one way of getting me over to shoot your team or your training. I do presentations on SAR in Iceland, field searching and tracking, volunteerism in SAR and more.
Crisis and emergencies
Depending on availability I am willing and able to document crisis and emergensies as they unfold, be it for NGO's or other related agencies. The right imagery can prove crucial in raising funds and avereness in humanitarian crisis. As with other projects there are different ways of funding my services, such as joint missions between multiple organizations and sponsored projects. As I have a long history of search and rescue and volunterism, my rates are flexible when it comes to projects I feel passionate about.
Emergency lifestyle photoshoot
If you or your team needs imagery for promotion or other purposes, my documentary- and commercial photographic skills, backed up by my search and rescue background might be useful to make your imagery come alive. The world is getting smaller and my work area includes Europe and USA and if needed I might even travel further.
Buy Images / licence images
My growing catalog of emergency images might contain something worth your wall space. All the images on this website are available for purchase in digital or printed versions. Until my online store is up and running you can contact my through e-mail og the contact page on this site.
Presentations and workshops
For years I used to train search and rescue volunteers and professionals in different SAR skills and now I blend that with my outdoor photographic workshops on my home turf in Iceland. The workshops are as much about creating opportunities to catch that shot of action and adventure as it is about photography techniques, outdoor skills and tips and tricks to keep that camera and your creativity running in the harsh arctic conditions.
As well as running tailored workshops I have presented about SAR in Iceland through images at various conferences and meetings in the international SAR community around the world and would be happy to consider visiting your conference.
I would love to hear from you. Lets talk and see if we can´t find common ground.
